Re: stripped and seized bolt - how to remove

I would try to cut a noch in the top or side of the bolt and use an air hammer to at least loosen it. I say at least because the hammer can cut the bolt head off.

Craftsman has these little jobbers that go over the stripped bolt and attach to a ratchet. I have heard that they work very well but are expensive. If you strip bolts often they maybe worth the price.
